A building block dialogue toolkit has been designed based on these experiences and efficiently applied to the office message center with the capabilities of automatic call routine, meeting scheduling and email access. This paper also introduces some of the key components constructed for the spoken dialogue system: ASR engine and robust semantic parser, dialogue management module with consideration of domain portability, configurable template based sentence generation, and text to speech strategy.
